âGoliath: Life and Loathing in Greater Israelâ
Max Blumenthal, journalist, and blogger, formerly a writer for The Daily
Beast and Al Akhbar, author of Republican Gomorrah: Inside the
Movement that Shattered the Party and the New York Times best-selling
Goliath: Life and Loathing in Greater Israel.

In Goliath, Max Blumenthal takes us on a journey through Israel-Palestine,
painting a startling portrait of Israeli society under the siege of
increasingly authoritarian politics as the occupation of the Palestinians
deepens. He tells the story of Israel in the wake of the collapse of the
Oslo peace process.Through his far-ranging travels, Blumenthal
illuminates the present by uncovering the ghosts of the pastâthe
histories of Palestinian neighborhoods and villages now gone and
forgotten and how that history has set the stage for the current crisis.
Eliminating NYâs Tipped Sub-Minimum Wage
Paul Sonn, General Counsel,Ntl. Employment Law Project (NELP)

Marking a new front in the fight for fair pay for low-wage workers in NY
a new coalition of womenâs leaders, food delivery workers, and
low-wage tipped workers are calling for an end to the sub-minimum wage
for tipped workers, as the Cuomo administration prepares to appoint a
Wage Board charged with recommending an increase in the stateâs
tipped sub-minimum wage. A new report by NELP finds that a Wage
Order eliminating the tipped sub-minimum wage would benefit an
estimated 229,000 low-wage tipped workers. The minimum wage for
thousands of tipped food service workers remains stuck at just $5.00/hr.
(tipped hotel workers earn slightly higher at $5.65 per hour).
Feeding New York:
Food Manufacturing Workers Struggle Against Raw Deal
. Daniel Gross, Ex. Dir., Brandworkers

. Manuel Estevez, Member, Brandworkers

Food production industry workers prepare and deliver food across the
city. With $5 billion in annual sales, NYCâs food manufacturing industry is
slated to become a major economic driver in the coming years. Now, a
new report, âFeeding New Yorkâ, details workers' experiences in the city's
growing food manufacturing industry, from the perspective of those
employed in it. It exposes pervasive wage theft, discrimination, and
dangerous work conditions that impact this 14,000 strong workforce of
primarily Latin-American, African-American and Asian workers.
